What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Propounds a stark and challenging thesis, namely that contemporary Bible readers are confronted with two radically different ways of approaching Scripture and that both approaches are impressive and admirable—-and fundamentally incompatible. Professor Kugel is a rare master of both approaches.... The journey is fascinating." —-The New York Times
